All About Mary A: John 19, 25-27 makes reference to the beloved disciple who traditionally (Canon Muratori) was identified as John the apostle and author of the fourth gospel , letters (1-3) and Revelations.
Las Tres Marías , the Three Maries, are the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene , and Mary of Cleofas . They are often depicted at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ or at his tomb.
Jesus was taken to the governor, Pontius Pilate. The people wanted Jesus crucified . All this happened while Jesus ‘ mother and the disciple John were at the cross , wanting to be with Jesus . But Peter wasn’t there.
The Bible doesn’t say anything about Joseph at the time of Christ’s death . It is possible, however, that Joseph died before the public ministry of the Lord Jesus , because in Matthew 12 we read: “While He was still speaking to the people, behold, His mother and His brothers stood outside, asking to speak to Him.
Jesus sees that His mother and the disciple have followed Him to His cross . They are firm witnesses of His love for humanity. He will start a dialogue with them, but before he uses words to address them, He starts a dialogue with the eyes.
The assumption that the Beloved Disciple was one of the Apostles is based on the observation that he was apparently present at the Last Supper, and Matthew and Mark state that Jesus ate with the Twelve. Thus, the most frequent identification is with John the Apostle , who would then be the same as John the Evangelist .
Jesus had five brothers, namely, James (Ya’qov), Simon (Shim’on), Judah (Yehudah), Joses (Yosef) and Thomas (Toma’). And he also had two sisters, Rachel (Rakhel) and Lea (Le’ah).
Three Marys present at the crucifixion of Jesus; Three Marys at the tomb of Jesus on Easter Sunday; Three Marys as daughters of Saint Anne.
Some apocryphal accounts state that at the time of her betrothal to Joseph, Mary was 12–14 years old . According to ancient Jewish custom, Mary could have been betrothed at about 12. Hyppolitus of Thebes says that Mary lived for 11 years after the death of her son Jesus, dying in 41 AD.
John alone among the Apostles remained near Jesus at the foot of the cross on Calvary alongside myrrhbearers and numerous other women; following the instruction of Jesus from the Cross , John took Mary, the mother of Jesus, into his care as the last legacy of Jesus.
And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani?” which means, “My God , my God , why hast thou forsaken me?” This is the only saying which appears in more than one Gospel, and is a quote from Psalm 22:1 (or probably Psalm 42:9).
Mary Magdalene as trusted disciple For its part, the Bible gave no hint that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’s wife . None of the four canonical gospels suggests that sort of relationship, even though they list the women who travel with Jesus and in some cases include their husbands’ names.
In Pullman’s version of the story, Jesus has a twin brother named Christ . “I was intrigued, you see, by the difference between the two parts of the name Jesus Christ that we commonly use interchangeably,” Pullman says.
Jesus’ brothers and sisters The Gospel of Mark (6:3) and the Gospel of Matthew (13:55–56) mention James, Joseph/Joses, Judas/Jude and Simon as brothers of Jesus, the son of Mary . The same verses also mention unnamed sisters of Jesus.
Simon of Cyrene /saɪˈriːni/ (Hebrew: שמעון “Hearkening; listening”, Standard Hebrew Šimʿon , Tiberian Hebrew Šimʿôn ; Greek: Σίμων Κυρηναῖος , Simōn Kyrēnaios) was the man compelled by the Romans to carry the cross of Jesus of Nazareth as Jesus was taken to his crucifixion, according to all three Synoptic Gospels.
